Recall of EpiPen and EpiPen Jr Auto-Injectors

by Allegro Pediatrics

This voluntary recall impacts specific lots of the EpiPen® and EpiPen Jr® Auto-Injectors, due to reports outside of the U.S. of failure to activate the device. The potential defect could make the device difficult to activate in an emergency and have significant health consequences for a patient experiencing a life-threatening allergic reaction (anaphylaxis). The incidence of the defect is extremely rare.

See the press release on the FDA’s website for more details on the impacted lots.
